Birgitte Kallestad was on holidays with friends in the Philippines in February.

Birgitte carried it in her basket and groomed it after getting back to the resort. The cuts were so small that nobody saw the need for further medical supervision, the family said.

She began feeling symptoms after returning to Norway but doctors struggled to diagnose the disease as she didn't think of her interactions with the dog. She patched up and sterilized the wounds herself.

It has been over 200 years since rabies was last detected on the Norwegian mainland.

The puppy had given her minor bites and small scrapes during this time, according to Kallestad's family. A doctor finally thought the symptoms were caused by rabies.

After conducting tests, Sweden's Public Health Authorities confirmed on Saturday that Kallestad had rabies.

So playing Jessica is fun and easy and pleasant. "But I understand how that could feel interconnected and could get muddled". She continued: "Y'all are making a lot of assumptions about what I was saying".

Kallestad and her friends did not receive a rabies shot before their holiday because it was not required in the Philippines.

"Our dear Birgitte loved animals", her family said in the statement, according to the Washington Post.

'Our fear is that this will happen to others who have a warm heart like her. "We want this vaccine to be included in the programme for places where it can be rabies and that people become aware of the dangers".

The family continued: 'If we can achieve this, the death of our sunbeam can save others'. She made several trips to the emergency room of the hospital where she worked and was eventually admitted on April 28.

Rabies is a treatable illness - but can cause a life-threatening infection of the brain and nervous system in humans if left untreated.

With rabies are infected, especially wild animals. "The vast majority of rabies cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) each year occur in wild animals like raccoons, skunks, bats, and foxes". Some victims also have hydrophobia, which is a fear of water. More About Rabies Rabies is a viral disease that kills tens of thousands of deaths every year, 95 percent of which are located in Asia and Africa, according to the World Health Organization.
